Soldier Field was an absolute mess on Sunday.
Heavy rain flooded the area and drenched the new Bermuda grass that was installed this week — which replaced the traditional Kentucky bluegrass that was previously used in a stadium that’s often criticized for its choppy surface.
The players not only had to deal with terrible conditions, but so did the fans.
One 49ers fan got stuck under a fountain of water that was pouring down from the upper concourse. And to make matters worse, he lost his popcorn in the process.
The field was soaked with puddles and standing water, producing an ugly game that ultimately ended in a 19-10 Bears win.
Trey Lance was 13-of-28 for 164 yards and an interception, while his counterpart, Justin Fields, threw for 121 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the game.
